On 14 May 2013 we presented an initial background report to the Licensing Committee on an application for a novelty motorised tricycle vehicle to become licensed for private hire.
Please note: this application is not for standard private hire in and around the city of Leeds but is for a distinct role in the 'special event' arena; a private hire service specifically aimed at the tourist trade in and around the Yorkshire Dales.
This is the first application within the classification of a novelty vehicle that we have received and there is a requirement for further trade and public consultation to enable us to prepare a draft policy and licence conditions in relation to such a vehicle, operator and driver.
Elected Members have agreed to a public consultation period of 4 weeks - closing date for submissions is Wednesday 12 June 2013.
The report presented to the Licensing Committee can be found by selecting the Downloads tab below. You can also find the first drafts of standard conditions attached to a novelty motorised tricycle vehicle and standard conditions attached to a novelty motorised tricycle operator.
It is anticipated that the standard conditions attached to a novelty motorised tricycle driver will broadly mirror the standard private hire driver conditions.
Please be aware that all of the draft conditions can be added to/ amended as a result of this public consultation and no approval to licence has yet been granted.
You are invited to submit your views on the policy and conditions via email;
